Sonos Connect:Amp review

 

At the start of 2012, rumors started spreading that Google was readying a home theater device to rival the likes of the Apple TV and the Sonos system. But when that mythical creature turned out to be the Nexus Q , it was hard to swallow our collective...

The Sonos Connect:Amp is an excellent all-in-one digital music system that offers superb sound quality. It gives you access to nearly any cloud music service (Pandora, Spotify, Amazon, Rhapsody, and so forth) using any iOS device or Android smartphone...

You'll need to have separate speakers and a tablet or smartphone. The Sonos Connect:Amp doesn't support iTunes Match. While it can wirelessly interact with other Sonos products, you'll need a hard-wired connection or the $49 wireless Sonos Bridge...

The Sonos Connect:Amp is an excellent streaming-audio solution for sound-quality sticklers who prefer to supply their own speakers.

The Sonos Connect:Amp isn't cheap, but it's a no-compromise all-in-one digital music system that's perfect for people who are serious about digital music — and about cloud-based music services in particular.

Superb sound quality ; Access to cloud music services ; Uses any iOS device or Android smartphone as a remote ; Has a line-in, for connecting a TV or DVD player

Need to have separate speakers and a tablet or smartphone ; Doesn't support iTunes Match ; Need a hard-wired connection or the $49 wireless Sonos Bridge accessory to connect to other Sonos products

Good - but with sound quality limitations

 

I have purchased the Play 5 speaker for our bedroom, the Connect Amp for the kitchen to replace a micro system (so used the good quality speakers I had on that), a Connect to link to my hifi system in the lounge, and finally a bridge to connect to my...

Very easy setup Sound quality is pretty good Connect Amp works very well

Sound quality average when compared to same price range

Streaming whole house audio has never easier

 

The major grip people have with Sonos is the expense and while on paper that may seem like a hard pill to swallow, in reality the difference may not be so stark, especially for a whole house audio setup. If you want to run a whole house audio system,...

Easy setup, infinite choices for music, great sound quality, great versatility, sleek minimalistic appearance.

Somewhat high initial upfront cost. The amps get a little warm.

Sonos use to be good but many problems now!

 

If you are Computer Savy the system is OK but if you are not I would not recommend SONOS. Appears that lately they are having lots of App upgrades and each one for me is taking one hour to complete as I have four SONOS components and for the system to...

Use to work good with no problems with my iPOD Touch. Connected it up with no problems, four SONOS Units 2 x Zone Player 90 and 2 x Zone Player 120 with over 8,000 songs.

If you have an iPOD and iPAD2 App controlling your SONOS and you receive an App upgrade SONOS has a sync problem. What ever device receives the App upgrade first is ok, 2nd device on more than five occurances brought the entire system down.

You get what you pay for.

 

The Connect Amp is a quick and easy way to convert an existing stereo system to the Sonos system. The amp is a bit pricy, but I think you get what you pay for in this case.

Great for built in ceiling speakers

 

I have been a big user of Sonos for years. We sold our old system when we moved. Now we need new equipment for our new house. I'm planning to buy a few more once we get the wiring installed.
